Staying in the Element

A Not-So-Hidden Gem in the Heart of Philadelphia

Staycation, girls' getaway weekend, bachelorette party weekends, a stay after a night at the theater … all of these are great reasons to book a stay at Element by Westin in Downtown Philadelphia.

Located in the heart of it all, Element is an easy walk to many iconic Philadelphia landmarks and activities. Positioned steps away from historic City Hall, this hotel allows easy access to the Academy of Music, Rittenhouse Square, Love Park, the Mutter Museum, the Franklin Institute, Reading Terminal Market, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, and so much more. Element is the perfect place to stay while exploring Philadelphia.

Offering 414 rooms, 46 suites, and 37 meeting rooms spread over 24 floors, this high-rise hotel provides spacious accommodations with a focus on extended stays. All accommodations have either a kitchenette or a full kitchen, oversized closets, and spa-inspired bathrooms. The full kitchen provides a great alternative to dining out daily.

The Element hotel brand is rooted in nature and focused on wellness. You will find natural Nordic-influenced aesthetics throughout the hotel spaces allowing guests to be surrounded by an uplifting, laid-back, and relaxing atmosphere. Sustainability is at the core of Element. This eco-friendly hotel’s oversized windows provide natural lighting, which reduces the demand for electricity throughout the building. Their other eco-conscious practices such as improved air quality and minimizing the use of pollutants and chemicals, offer a cleaner and healthier environment for guests. In addition, Element has many more eco-friendly touches, such as multiple electric vehicle charging stations, wall art mounted on a base made from recycled tires, filtered water in all guest rooms and public spaces, carpet made with up to 100% recycled content, low-flow faucets and fixtures in the bathrooms, and easy recycling in guest rooms and public spaces. Element is taking great strides to promote sustainability and overall wellness throughout its property.

All guests of Element can enjoy RISE, a complimentary breakfast that is provided daily. Guests will find more than just the usual hotel breakfast spread, with multiple hot and fresh choices to fuel their day. In the evenings, guests can unwind at the SKY Lobby for RELAX, a complimentary happy hour, which provides beer, wine, and small snacks. RELAX is offered Monday through Thursday from 5:30 - 7:30 pm and is a great way to kick back after a long day of work or exploring the city. 

Dog owners will be happy to learn that Element is a pet-friendly hotel! Their ‘Love that Dog’ program provides your tail-wagging friends with a signature dog bed, food, water bowls, clean-up supplies, and more. With so many great parks nearby, your dog will feel like they are on vacation too! 

Element offers Motion, their 24/7 fitness center, so guests can keep their fitness routine away from home. This sun-filled space offers exercise bikes, cardiovascular equipment, free weights, rowing machines, strength equipment, and more. In addition to the fitness center, Element offers a complimentary Bikes-to-Borrow program, which allows hotel guests to check-out bicycles to ride around the city. The hotel concierge will be happy to suggest local attractions to visit and provide directions on how to cycle there. 

If a day of relaxing is on the agenda, guests can book a spa day at the Away Spa located at the adjacent W Hotel. This full-service spa offers massages, body and facial treatments, as well as private fitness training and energy healing sessions, making this a great option for a solo or group spa day. When booking a spa treatment, guests from Element gain access to W’s Wet Deck Pool and Wet Bar. The Wet Deck Pool offers heated outdoor pool experiences 365 days a year. If you have ever wanted to swim in the snow, the Wet Deck Pool offers that option. Luxury cabanas are available for rent poolside as well. The views from the Wet Deck Pool and the rooftop Secret Garden are exceptional and provide a great way to spend a memorable day or evening above Center City. 

In addition to offering great accommodations for hotel guests, Element and the W Hotel offers 45,000 square feet of meeting and event space between them, making this a wonderful location for conferences, company meetings of all sizes, law firm gatherings, weddings, private events, and more. These spaces are chic and well-appointed with lighting and industry-leading technology/AV equipment. Attendees of these events will be happy to have the ability to book a stay at Element and use the convenient features of the extended-stay rooms, which is a rarity in conference and event travel. 

When considering a stay or your next event in Philadelphia, look no further than Element. It will be the perfect hotel for all of your needs! The friendly staff will make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door! To learn more about Element Philadelphia, visit
